GÂRDEN is a non-profit organisation with a mission to enrich and expand the musical culture with intimate, interactive and immersive livestreams that are accessible to everyone. We believe that livestreaming can make the music sector more inclusive, creative, sustainable and resilient.

Make Music Bloom
Music connects, emancipates and liberates people and something special happens when the music arises in front of you. That is why we want to make live music accessible to a wider and more diverse audience.

We invite both emerging and renowned artists to co-create a next level livestream. We provide them a new artistic challenge and a stage to showcase their music worldwide and reach all their fans in the same time. In our productions the artistic vision of the artists is leading and we are proud of being different with our carefully produced visuals.

Join our trip to discover the true potential of livestreaming. Spread the word, enjoy our livestreams and become a member to support our mission. Let’s Make Music Bloom together!

To scout and select performing artists we use an automated, community based curation system. Artists can pitch to be part of our curation. Anyone who prefers to be in full control and own all content can book our studio.

In 2020 we started filming and recording live sessions and were blown away by the wealth of great content created within a short period of time. We broadcasted these sessions on YouTube and noticed that during the premieres there actually was some sense of a live experience with an online crowd. From then on we wanted to discover the true potential of livestreaming. In 2021, we built a specifically designed livestream studio and started broadcasting next level livestreams.
